Name of creator
The Toronto Mail was a newspaper based in Toronto, Ontario that was founded by Thomas Charles Patterson in 1872. Beginning as the newspaper of the federal Conservative Party, the Mail declared itself independent of any political party in 1886 until it returned to its Conservative beginnings and merged with the Toronto Empire to form the The Mail and Empire in 1895. In 1936, the paper would again merge, this time with the Globe to form the Globe and Mail.
Besides the purchase of the photostatic copies from Preston Microfilming, it is unclear how the City of Edmonton Archives acquired the records.
